The Guardian (Nigeria) - - THE METROSECTION - By Margaret Mwan­tok

GAC Mo­tors has ful­filled its promise to the win­ner of the 2017 Miss Nige­ria pageant, Miss Ehiguese Mildred Peace, who re­ceived the key to a brand new GAC GA3 car last week. Mildred who won the Miss Nige­ria con­test, emerged win­ner out of 35 other girls that par­tic­i­pated in the events held last month in Lagos.

The Miss Nige­ria Pageant is the fran­chise of Fo­lio Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, owner of Nige­ria’s old­est news­pa­per pub­li­ca­tion, Dai­ly­times.

Dur­ing her one year reign, 18-year-old Mildred, who rep­re­sented Adamawa State at the con­test, a grad­u­ate of Redeemer’s Univer­sity, said her pri­or­ity would be to cater for vic­tims of rape and sur­vivors of child abuse through projects.

She is also ex­pected to serve as Nige­ria’s cul­tural am­bas­sador and sup­port the in­ter­est of ma­jor spon­sors like GAC Mo­tors. GAC Mo­tors ful­filled its promise to win­ner dur­ing a cer­e­mony held at the Lagos of­fice of the firm. Gen­eral Man­ager of GAC Mo­tors, Mrs. Mildred Oparaeke, said the part­ner­ship be­tween the Miss Nige­ria event and Choice In­ter­na­tional Group, mak­ers of GAC Mo­tors was a re­flec­tion of the close ties de­vel­op­ing be­tween Nige­ria and China.
